Nipped in here after returning from a holiday. What a terrific surprise! Menu would not be out of place in a city centre top hotel. Lovely range and local suppliers proudly advised. Great service from friendly staff, decor cosy and welcoming. Thanks! We will be back!

Foods just a bit dull & yet £10plus a meal. dining area feels cramped at the back of the pub. Would be better if just general & you could eat & drink at any table. good summer pub to sit outside.

Hi Emma, Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback, I think you may have misunderstood the pub slightly, you can order food at any table in the pub or outside not just the restaurant, this is written at the top of the menu, we do place the bookings we take in the restaurant side though as the...

We went here to celebrate 21 years since we met, and had a fantastic evening. A great selection of real ales, plus excellent food and attentive service, especially from Kim, made for a memorable evening. We have been here several times now, and every time the food has been excellent. The only problem is how to choose from all the... More

I visited the John Millington last night 6th. May 2015 with a friend. We enjoyed a lovely meal. The service was both good and friendly. We were served by Kim and a young man whose name I do not know. They were both very attentive but not intrusive and made us feel very welcome indeed. We will definitely be going... More

For my starter I had pate which was fine but my husband said his deep fried black pudding was very dry and the mustard mayo it was supposed t be served with was just plain mayo. For main I had a plain burger, it was very... More

You must visit here. The food is superb and the service is second to none. I would also recommend the Duo of Lamb. The place also offers a superb selection of ales to try.
